The Roman Catholics should set a good example of family panning. Since 95% of their priests are gay, they should let them marry each other.

I like your thinking Frank, right in step with the times. They could adopt alter boys to complete the family.

PS. Your estimate of gay priests is totally specious. I would guestimate that it is no greater than 85%. I calculate this by using the old 80/20 rule and adding five.

How did you determine that 95% of priests are gay? Just because 95% of priests are likely child molesters, that would leave at most only 5% as possible gays. Almost all child molesters are heterosexuals.

Any actual facts to back you 'bold statement'?

Even though 80% of the victims were post adolescent boys?

Yea, his math is a bit fuzzy isn't it?

I believe in the drop of ink theory. When you have this known mixture of gay and molesting priests, the whole thing is toxic waste to be avoided. Today, the stigma is on those who have any link to the RCC.

Not so important, just curious about something - I personally don't think all these problems are the fault of the religion, meaning the molestations, etc. I think they have lousy leadership and the current pope is NOT taking firm enough action against the guilty parties - I think there are many other error in RC teaching anyway. They distort everything to make it fit their agenda, know what I mean?

You're on here everyday bit*hing about a faith that you once belonged to, so I think it only fair to ask you a question. What religion are you now?

From what I have seen since you left the Church, you have said blasphemies against Mary, our Lord Jesus Christ, called into question the existence of God, made slams against the Holy Word of God, HIS BIBLE, and you hang out on threads making trouble with anyone that is against homosexuality.

So where does this put you? Let's see, if I could sum all that up in a word I would say you've gone off the deep end and instead of going into heresy, you've fallen flat on your face into atheism.

Who are you to say anyone is in error for God's sake????

Who are YOU to say somebody's in error? My religion? Truth & science, thank you. Mary - blasphemy? I thought only God could be blasphemed. Sum it all up? Why give me any thought? I don't give you any :) And MAN wrote the bible, NOT God. Enough, go away kid, you bother me :)

But that's all good and several points in her favor, I'd say!

Only the primitive and very gullible believe in the nonsense you mentioned. Ridiculing such nonsense is the proper thing to do.

Are you kidding? There are literally millions of people that believe in God, more so than those that don't and literally millions of them that would outsmart you.

Are you saying that President Obama is primitive and gullible? President Clinton? William F. Buckley? Many of our forefathers?

You non believes give yourself airs about how much smarter you are because you don't believe in God. To those of us that believe, we think you're fools to deny Him and the evidence of His existence.

Guess we're at a stalemate.

Pretty sad statement for the gays though isn't it when you look at what they did to the Church.

Child rape is a gay thing I guess.

People who believe imaginary characters are real seldom outsmart anyone.
